‘Under The Hood’ - An Introduction to the brain and neuroscience, with Steve Marriott (UK)

Taken directly from the Behaviour & The Brain programme, this session will offer participants an introduction to our latest understanding about the brain; and how neuroscience is contributing to an expanding bank of knowledge which is shattering a number of strongly held beliefs about the drivers of human behaviour and challenging many traditional leadership and learning practices. 

We will look at:

• The evolution and anatomy of your brain

• How neurons process information to create memories and learning

• The vital role of neurotransmitters

• Key insights from the NeuroLeadership Institute

My goal as your guide with this session is not to make you a ‘neuro-expert’, but rather to leave you with a sense of awe and wonder, and a better understanding of the amazing organ that resides ‘Under the Hood’.

Steve Marriott is a behavioural specialist, combining over 25 years of leadership learning & development and consultancy experience with the latest findings in neuroscience and performance psychology. He is the co-author of two books on leadership and transformational change and is a prolific facilitator, speaker and performance coach working in the UK and Europe.

His clients include some of the largest companies in the nuclear industry, manufacturing, retail, leisure & tourism, service and hospitality sectors. In just the last eight years, he has personally worked with over 3000 leaders in highly regulated industries, helping them understand the important behavioural shifts necessary to work collaboratively and lead high performing teams. His direct and frank approach to his work has seen him parachuted in to deal with and successfully turnaround dysfunctional teams.

Highly regarded by some of the most regulated companies in the UK, Steve’s experience, knowledge and ability to help people grow and develop sees him as a most sought after specialist in the field of cultural transformation and leadership & behavourial development.
